Thanks to everyone who has replied with comments and help. I didn't want to post the original with the EXIF because his junk is out. Anyways.

Here's the info.

Shutter speed: 1/40 sec

F stop: f/3.5

ISO: 6400 (I'm guessing this is where things went wrong)

Focal length: 18mm

Probably not a fast enough shutter speed to freeze any possible movements of your hands and/or the baby.

Here's another picture, with the same effects, probably even more exaggerated.

Shutter speed: 1/60 sec

F stop: f/3.5

ISO: 3200

Focal length: 18mm

At high ISOs, if you are shooting jpeg files, the noise reduction settings can and will be able to produce the smearing effect you see when you enlarge the photos. Sony's in-camera noise reduction is far too heavy handed, and leads to serious image quality degradation.
